San Jose Sharks: 5 Questions for 2nd Half of 2013 NHL Season

The only true success for the San Jose Sharks would be winning the Stanley Cup

The San Jose Sharks came out in January with all the answers, earning a perfect point percentage. Going into the second half of the 2013 NHL season, they have mostly questions.

Primarily, when will they start scoring?

Whether the Sharks were really an offensive juggernaut was fairly questioned by "The Neutral" on Fear the Fin, but they've finished in the top 10 in the league every season under Todd McLellan until last year. Now that kind of elite scoring is coming from just four forwards and one defenseman.

Teams with gaping problems, championship aspirations and arguably the most prolific trade history of any team in recent years are bound to have trade rumors circulating about them. Certainly whether or not this roster is going to change is an obvious question.

What the team needs to ask internally is what elements of the game are missing and which of these trades solve those problems. For teams in need of goaltending, trading a second-round pick for Roberto Luongo would be a steal; for the Sharks, it would be a waste.

When the Sharks look at their roster and their play so far, finding as many answers as possible to these five questions could shore up that gaping hole and make them contenders for the 2013 Stanley Cup.
